I also think Vile's most important message is that the discussion needs to happen as a discussion, not rampaging in the streets. We have degenerated into chaos on these issues before and there were millions of deaths. Sometimes that's unavoidable. This time, I think it is avoidable -- and very much worth avoiding.

ThyPeace, tired.


I totally agree. I am happy to see the discussion is taking place. It needs to remain civil...with no name calling. Our country is so divided right now choosing sides would only cause the alt left and the alt right to grow much larger, and much more frightening.

Maybe the plaques need to be changed to reflect the issues on both sides. Lets discuss it openly, and see if we can come up with something non violent.

*Thank you to Vile and Vetiver for opening the discussion*

I think the statues should remain standing, but I would like to hear the pros and cons without the childhood name calling. Once the name calling starts, the discussion gets lost in the shyt throwing, and nothing positive comes out of it. Bean
